Title: Religious Encounters: Text, Travel, and Tradition

As Michael Pasquier rightly suggests, the concept of 'religion' is relatively modern, emerging predominantly through political and scientific innovations. However, this does not imply that notions of the 'sacred' or 'spiritual' were absent in earlier times. From the dawn of human existence, individuals have sought to create meaning around themselves and their place in the world. This quest to explain the origin of life and the universe has led to the creation of sacred histories, narratives, oral mythological traditions, texts, symbols, and sites.

updated: 
Friday, June 28, 2024 - 7:04pm
Journal of Festival Culture Inquiry and Analysis

Food fests, feasts, and gatherings address the role of food in events, gatherings, celebrations, and ceremonies. Exploring how people incorporate ideas about food into festival culture, including history, heritage, tradition, creativity, and social and political factors. 

In addition, it examines festivals in which food is not the main focus, yet contributes significantly to the atmosphere, memory, and tradition. It also looks at people's fascination with taste. In addition to examining these notions, we will also examine trends in the consumption and production of food.

The focus will be on examining how these seemingly disparate worlds converged, shaping artistic production across various disciplines.

Reconceptualizing Religion in Early African American Literature (Deadline Extended)

updated: 
Wednesday, June 26, 2024 - 11:17am
Special Issue of Early American Studies (UPenn)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 31, 2024

For a special issue on early African American literature and religion, Early American Studies (UPenn) seek article-length contributions on how 18th and 19th century Black writers reconceptualized religion beyond the telos of the nation-state. The roles of religion and religious thought in early Black culture have often been understood within the dualistic frame of resistance whereby Christianity, the dominant religion of colonial and antebellum American society, is both employed by masters to subjugate the enslaved and employed by the slaved to resist their masters’ subjugation of them.

Call for papers: a companion to Dennis Wheatley

updated: 
Monday, June 24, 2024 - 1:50pm
University of Southern Queensland
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 12, 2024

Dennis Wheatley sold around one million books a year at the height of his popularity and over 50  million in total. Britain’s ‘occult uncle’ shaped modern popular understanding of the weirdly esoteric and the darkly satanic in a way without parallel, but his books equally celebrated the luxuries of good wine and cigars, were adapted into successful films by Hammer, taught suspicion of the foreigner, described sex and sexuality in surprisingly frank terms for the era, influenced the Bond stories and the course of the Second World War, and drew on copious research.

New Perspectives on Hawthorne and Utopia

Nathaniel Hawthorne Review, Spring, 2025

Editors: Monika Elbert and Andrew Loman

In The Scarlet Letter, Hawthorne writes, “The founders of a new colony, whatever Utopia of human virtue and happiness they might originally project, have invariably found it among their  earliest practical necessities to allot a portion of the virgin soil as a cemetery, and another portion as the site of a prison” (CE 1:47). This famous sentence deploys a number of key terms – the colony, virtue, happiness, projection, necessity, virginity, the cemetery, the prison – all of them interlinked with the sentence’s key term, Utopia.

Ambedkar and Community: Minor Figurations and Comparative Mediations

updated: 
Sunday, June 2, 2024 - 7:14pm
Centre for Comparative Literature, University of Hyderabad
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 22, 2024

Singularly remembered for his influential role in authoring the Constitution of India, Ambedkar’s
thinking continues to provoke new thoughts on the normative orders of the social and the state.
However, foregrounding the centrality of “community” in understanding the social and the state,
this conference invites scholars to rethink Ambedkar as a paradigmatic figure—a writer and a
thinker—on community, understood as critical, even conflictual, constellations of affinities and
associations.
The idea of such a conference itself was an offshoot of conversations and contestations among a
few scholars of Humanities and Social Sciences in Hyderabad, working and worrying

RSA 2025: Laboring writers in the early modern world

updated: 
Thursday, May 23, 2024 - 2:26pm
N/A
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 15, 2024

We are seeking papers for a panel at RSA 2025 in Boston that address laboring writers--not so much writing as labor, but writers whose primary identity is as a laborer, peasant, artisan, or craftsperson from any geographic region. Such writers are often neglected in favor of courtiers and their clients. Indeed, some of how we conceive of “the literary” today is informed by the tastes of the ruling elite of the early modern period. This panel thus aims to recover non-elite voices of the past.

We invite presenters to examine the dynamic interactions between Asian and European societies, emphasizing the multi-directional flow of ideas, goods, and artistic practices.

Nahi Hatenge / We Shall Not Move: Perspectives on Muslim belonging in South Asia

updated: 
Sunday, March 24, 2024 - 6:22am
Panel for Annual Conference of South Asia 2024 at Wisconsin-Madison
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 2, 2024

Panel Convener: Shahwar Kibria Maqhfi, UCLA. This panel aims to bring together diverse ideas of being Muslim in contemporary South Asia. We wish to explore multiple articulations and evidence of sameness through sound, image, text, performance, active recollection, and memory, in the context of increased otherisation. We are therefore interested in papers, which explore junctures, events, overlaps, and nodes, situated across time and space, which act as vestibules between the idea of “Muslimness” and “belonging”. Conceptions of Muslim belonging may not only be appended to notions of religiosity, but also explore linkages with class, caste, gender, hegemonies, place making, pioneership, and rootedness.
